What happened to the traits
from the Cootie from the East?

Hypothesize what happened to the traits
Design an experiment to test that hypothesis
Predict your results based on your hypothesis
Conduct your experiment
Mating the second generation Cooties
To make a cootie baby:
1.) Both mom and day reach into cup #1 and bring out a body color factor
(red or blue cube), the information will be recorded on the computer
2.) Both mom and day reach into cup #2 and bring out the ear type factor
(white or black cube), record this information
3.) Both mom and day reach into cup #3 and bring out the eye type factor
(purple or yellow cube), record this information
4.) Both mom and day reach into cup #4 and bring out the mouth type factor
(light green or orange cube), record this information
5.) Both mom and day reach into cup #5 and bring out the foot type factor
(brown or green cube), record this information
What does your baby look like? Was your hypothesis supported or refuted?
Do you need to make more babies to figure out what is going on?
Remember, keep it random, nature cannot pick out specific trait factors.
Make 40 babies total.
Why are their two color
cubes in your cups?

What does it all mean
• Trend—30:10 ratio of traits from the east
versus traits from the west—or 3:1 ratio of
dominant to recessive phenotypes
• Trend—10:10:10:10 ratio of trait factors RR, Rr,
rR, rr—or 1:1:1:1 ratio.
• Rr and rR are the same thing– 1:2:1 ratio of
Homozygous dominant (RR) to Heterozygous
(rR & rR) to Homozygous recessive (rr)
genotypes
